The Adult Migrant English Program (AMEP) is funded by the Australian Government Department of Education and Training which provides free English language tuition to eligible new migrants and humanitarian entrants. The AMEP program is available to eligible migrants, from the humanitarian, family and skilled visa streams. The program gives clients access to up to 510 hours of English language tuition, in their first five years of settlement in Australia.
Having a reasonable level of English language proficiency is essential to successfully settle in Australia. The AMEP helps new arrivals learn skills that would enable them to confidently participate in Australian society as well as to help find and maintain employment.
